[Closed] How to Use This Forum


Topic starter

Because traditional message boards are as dead as Caesar, the Dagorhir Player Discussion group is built as a Question & Answer format, more akin to StackExchange.

Players can ask questions, offer answers, reply to answers, and up / down vote answers. The original poster can also choose a "Best Answer" to mark the thread as solved. 

Check below for some simple "how-to's" in using this forum.

There are two types of responses: comments, and answers. This, for example, is a comment

This structure allows for players to add their 2 coppers without necessarily needing to clutter up the answers section.
